    Hi, every now and then, when I exit out of an app, my old TouchWiz screen returns and I have to hit my home button in order to get my current launcher (Apex) screens back. I have Apex selected as my default launcher, so I dont know why this happens. Outside of rooting is there some way I can prevent TouchWiz from cropping up (I really dislike it)?

    The first thing I would try is clearing the defaults for Touchwiz.

    How do I do that? Is that in settings?

    Phone isn't near me... but Settings>whatever is on the left>apps

    Find TW, click on it and click the "clear defaults" button.

    Thanks guys, but that didn't solve the problem, unfortunately. I already had the defaults clear.

    Perhaps try downloading another launcher and see if it happens with it also. That way you can eliminate your launcher from the mix.

    Perhaps when you selected Apex you chose "just once" instead of always. Try clearing Apex's defaults and then choose "always" for Apex.

    When you choose Always for Apex long-press the home button and swipe away touchwiz from there.

    If that does not help, you can always disable touchwiz completely.

    yea that was what i was going to suggest, or clearing the cache, it will remove touchwiz launcher from memory and that shouldnt happen again after that.
